there are alternatives to the medications, there is hope and there is help
out there. I was diagnosed with depression
, anxiety, panic, bipolar and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This was about 5-6 years ago. Since then, I had been put on several medications. Every time I experienced something "new" the doctors would raise the medication. It came to a point that I was on so much medication that I could barely function. I, like you, knew this not "normal" for me.
